Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Indiana
Indiana is known as the Hoosier state. After decades of debate, the question of where ‘Hoosier’ came from has not been completely answered. However, there are clues in Indiana’s rich history that may explain the namesake.
One popular theory is that the word was derived from the local dialect, and was actually slang for “who’s there?” Another theory is that it refers to corn, as the Indian word for the vegetable is ‘Hoosa’, being the commonly grown cop in the region. However, the most likely answer relates to a contractor from early 1800s, named Hoosier, who hired the majority of his workers from Indiana, and his workforce became known as the “Hoosier’s men”. Regardless of this mystery, Indiana has established itself as a prosperous, engaging and colorful state, well known for a number of things.
Then there's racing. For over a century every May during Memorial Day weekend hundreds of thousands of fans flock to Indianapolis to watch the Indy 500, a race that is considered as one of the gems in the Triple Crown of Motorsport. Held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the Indy 500 has spawned its own style of open-wheel, open-cockpit racing simply known as Indy Car Racing. The gambling doesn't stop there...Evansville is home to Indiana's first casino, "Tropicana Evansville". Also, synonymous with Indiana is ice cream. The state is ranked second nationally in terms of ice-cream production and in 2011 it produces 87 million gallons of the sweet treat, from only 19 factories, in just 1 year.
And then there's healthcare...
With all of that ice cream, Hoosiers are glad that they can rely on Indiana’s robust healthcare system, which caters to its 6.7 million residents. And Daniels Health will be there to help.

Medical waste disposal done differently
When a cardboard box for medical waste just won’t cut it in a beautiful patient environment!
When we sought out to change the way sharps and medical waste was managed in the United States, we started with ‘would we place a cardboard box full of waste in our home environment’. The answer was no, so why would this be acceptable for a patient room? Across all 50 states, Daniels provides the safest, most secure, and most clinically advanced sharps, chemotherapy, pharmaceutical and medical waste containers for healthcare facilities, combatting issues commonly associated with medical waste disposal including medications theft, leaking, sharps injuries, infection risk and cross contamination.
Dramatically reduced infection transfer risk
Using a foot-pedal opening mechanism and bagless system means hand contact with the container is no longer required.
This no-touch alternative results in a dramatic reduction in the infection transfer risk that currently exists using standard medical waste containers. The Medismart reusable system ensures that once full, each container is removed from your premises, emptied, and then subjected to a rigorous 6-stage robotic wash and sanitization process that eliminates challenge organisms and proves a 106 Log reduction in bacterial load.
Clinically Engineered containers for all waste streams
With clear labeling, safe operating instructions, and distinct colors to distinguish
waste streams, Daniels has become recognized as a leading expert in healthcare waste
containment innovation and compliance. Daniels offers clinically engineered products
for the safe handling of all healthcare waste streams including RMW, pharmaceutical
and expired medications, chemotherapy waste, hazardous and clinical sharps.
